Has anyone ever taken a tour with Exodus? What did you think of them? My friend travelled with them in Central America and didn't rate them, and the fact that they list the Cape Verde Islands as part of Oceania/Australasia doesn't exactly fill me with confidence! I'd be interested to hear some more views though as they seem to offer some good itineraries. I'm looking at tour companies for various trips that I'm considering.

I dont really know about Exodus to much but im doing a couple of tours with G-Adventures. One in India and one in Peru. Ive heard some good reviews from people who have used them before. Prob worth a butchers!

Thanks - I went with G Adventures in December and January for their Delhi to Kathmandu tour and thought they were brilliant. We had an amazing guide, and other people on the tour who had used them before had good things to say about them. I'm sure you will have a good time with them - which tour are you doing?

Glad you recommend them aswell, pretty sure now i've made the right choice. Im going with Roam India tour a couple of days after i arrive in Delhi. And for Peru i picked "Peru on a shoestring" i think its called. It includes the Inca Trail which i thought i kinda had to do. lol

Would be interested to know any tips of where to stay etc in India seeing as im off in Feb.

That looks like a great itinerary; you're going to some of the same places that we went to on the Delhi - Kathmandu tour. If the joining hotel is the Shanti Palace in Delhi, it's pretty good, and the hotel in Agra was called the Taj Inn and was lovely. Our guide for the tour was called Kushwant Karan and as I said he was fantastic, so I hope you get him! I know he does various G Adventures tours around India. In Jaipur we stayed at this colonial -style, boutique hotel which was pretty cool.

Let me know if you need any more tips.

I met a Exodus tour group when I was doing the Annapurna in Nepal. They seemed like really professional people, although the guide leader was a real ass on Christmas day when he tried to "reserve" all the tables around the fireplace in the only guest house that night. Even his clients were appalled that he was acting like he owned the place. But that might have been a culture thing, and his clients were paying, what to me seemed like an exorbitant amount, for just guiding on this easy circuit.

So yes they seem like they know what they are doing, but you pay a premium for it.
